Assange, Wikileaks, and the Frantic Attempt to Shut Him Up

Assange is in a fight for his life right now, and he’s still dropping truth bombs on a daily basis in an attempt to show Americans the political system as it really is. Who else wonders how Ecuador was persuaded to switch off Julian Assange’s internet? Assange has been harbored inside the Ecuadoran Embassy since August of 2012, when they granted him asylum. Up until now, they have allowed him to do his thing, unfettered, until just last week. The very fact that the Embassy pointed out they did not bow to foreign government pressure probably means they did. Although it has been denied, Wikileaks tweeted that John Kerry asked the Ecuador government to switch off the internet in order to prevent any more damning evidence of why Hillary Clinton should not become president. (Note that the Tweets in this post are screenshots instead of being embedded – after all that has gone on, I don’t really trust that their Tweets will always be available.) Obviously, this has been emphatically denied by both sides. Ecuador said that the internet connection that Assange uses has been “temporarily disconnected” because the Wikileaks dumps were having a major effect on the upcoming presidential election. (source) Which was kind of the point. I guess it’s only okay to influence the election if your last name rhymes with Muckerburg or if you are a member of the mainstream media. Then there’s the fact that Ecuador is known for political corruption, how very ironic they should state they can’t condone any actions that can affect the presidential election. Ecuador has laws and regulations to combat official corruption, but they appear to be inadequately enforced. Illicit payments for official favors and theft of public funds take place frequently. Dispute settlement procedures are complicated by the lack of transparency and inefficiency in the judicial system. In addition, there are frequent allegations by the private sector that local authorities may demand “gratuities” to issue necessary permits.(source) Makes taking their reasoning for the cut-off a bit suspect don’t you think? Yeah, me too. CNN explains that it’s actually illegal to read Wikileaks Clinton’s own outlet, CNN  (Clinton News Network) provided us all with a public service announcement this week, dispensing the legal advice that you’d better not be reading Wikileaks unless you’re a member of the media. “Also interesting is, remember, it’s illegal to possess these stolen documents. It’s different for the media. So everything you learn about this, you’re learning from us.” Don’t take it from me. Take it from legal wizard extraordinaire Chris Cuomo. The lowlights thus far from the 25,000 Podesta emails The 14th Wikileaks Podesta data dump brings the total number of emails released so far up to 25,000, leaving us to wonder, did that Podesta guy have time to actually do anything else? He was certainly a prolific emailer. RT has the highlights of the latest leak. For a refresher on each of the previous batches of emails the Russian government news agency Sputnik has the rundown here. Here are some of the most important things that have emerged (the links are clickable for more information on each): The definite link between the Clinton campaign and what MSM is allowed to say. The DNC screwed Bernie Sanders out of the nomination (Bonus: Wikileaks also released some of the DNC’s voicemails on the topic). That the shadow government really exists and that Hillary’s job is to keep George Soros happy Excerpts from her speeches to Wall Street read like a guide to two-faced treachery Donna Brazile gave Hillary the questions in advance for her “impromptu” CNN Town Hall questions The campaign got to “approve” articles in publications like NY Times, HuffPo, CNN, NBC, CBS, NYT, MSNBC, and Politico How Hillary really feels about us all (spoiler: basket of deplorables, basement dwellers and right wing conspirators) The bribes pay-for-play that Hillary accepted via the Clinton Foundation The bribes pay-for-play that the Clinton campaign has taken.   Here’s a great video by my friends from Truthstream Media with even more revelations. Wikileaks says they have 50,000 of Podesta’s private emails.If they keep releasing them in batches, there’s a distinct possibility that we will get some on election day itself. I wonder if Wikileaks is keeping the best for last? The desperate attempt to silence Julian Assange The efforts to shut up Assange have led all sorts of ugly places. If you can’t drone him (like Hillary Clinton suggested), then frame him and accuse him of pedophilia. Wikileaks has provided a timeline and supporting links for the sustained efforts to discredit Assange. May, when self-claimed dating agency “ToddAndClare” (T&C) approach saying they were contacted by the Russian government. Sep 3, T&C email Assange’s Swedish lawyer Per Samuelson offering one million dollars for Assange to appear in a video advertisement for the “dating agency” (See attachment). This is the first contact. Sep 15, email sent from a member of Mr. Assange’s defence team to requesting further details (See attachment). Sep 19, email with elaborate bonafides, proposed agreement and the claim that the source of the US$1 million is the Russian government. The email states that T&C was approached by Russian representatives in May 2016 and that “The source of the $1,000,000 is the Russian government”. The email then goes on to “verify” bonafides by giving a detailed description of the interior of the house and desk of Mr Assange’s lawyer, Helena Kennedy, who is a member of the UK Parliament, including a reference to a photo of Tony Blair (Kennedy states that the […]
